Conduct test to validate KSOU degrees, govt urged

Forum of Former Vice-chancellors of Karnataka State Universities (FVCK) has advised the state government to conduct a proficiency test to solve the problems of over three lakh students who lack validity to their degrees awarded by KSOU.

Over three lakh students are unable to get employment or register for further studies as their degrees awarded between 2013 and 2015 by KSOU lack validity.

The government should obtain permission from the UGC, conduct a proficiency test to ensure validity to such degrees, an FVCK press release said.

The test may be a type of objective test covering the entire syllabus of each paper on the lines of CET or NEET.

Either KSOU or any national testing organisation with credibility could conduct the test. UGC's recommendations could be sought to fianlise the agency to conduct the test, said the release.

The government should support the writ petition of KSOU pending before the High Court, seeking direction to the UGC to consider its application for recognition, stated the release.
